Domaine Sainte Anne Cotes du Rhone Villages Saint Gervais, 2000

This old favorite from Domaine Sainte Anne is much more than an every day wine. It cost me only $12.99 a bottle; the current vintage sells for about $20 and worth every penny.

Beautiful medium deep crimson color. Brilliant and clear. This is what mature Mourvedre is about--rhubarb, red berries and Provencal herbs. Smells lovely, tastes even better. If there are tannins, they come from the fruit and are ripe and friendly. Steps lightly but has lots of power underneath. A hint of black pepper on the finish.
